Use Jenks's compound,
the great vegetable remedy:
It cures others,
It will cure you.

Use Jenks's compound,
try it, try it
It cures others,
It will cure you.

Read the testimonials
from reliable sources.
They're reliable sources,
voluntary everyone of them,
ev'ryone, ev'ryone.

John Smith was afflicted with severe aggregation,
o-oh friends.
With fifteen diseases in one combination,
o-oh friends.
The doctors gave him up,
The doctors gave him up,
they all gave him up,
everybody gave him up,
Except his wife,
Except his wife.

She made up her mind,
And when a woman makes her mind up
It's there to stay always
When she makes her mind up
'Tis there always
Though the summer roses fade,
Though the summer roses fade.

His wife, she bought a bottle of the great vegetable remedy
(To be well shaken
before taken
and kept in a very cool place well-corked).

See directions on the bottle,
and read the testimonials
very carefully, white (?) carefully.

He took the contents of fifteen bottles, did Smith,
one bottle to each disease,
and experienced a very great change:
Here, here, was a relief of his money.

Ah, children cry for it,
children cry for it,
not a family should be without it.

Read the testimonials
from reliable sources,
from all sources.

Jones was a total wreck, he was:
He couldn't lie down,
He couldn't sit up,
ate nothing for three long years.

Jones was a total wreck,
Without any doubt
Worth talking about,
He was a total wreck.

Till at last he was persuaded by a highly respectable neighbour across the way
To procure about [...] Jenks's vegetable compound.
And now he eats four meals a day,
and sometimes five.

Get the genuine,
Take no other,
While there's life there is hope, dear friends.

Sold, sold ev'rywhere,
all the chemists keep it
Be sure to get the genuine
Beware of imitations
Beware of imitations!

Sold, sold ev'rywhere,
and so was Jones
Jenks's compound
good for man
'Tis good for man,
good for man
for man or beast.
